Please bare with the implied vanity of the post title; I promise you that there are reasons for it which reach beyond self worship. It may sound silly but this outfit just means a whole lot of good to me. I wore it on the night out after the last night of our show, which conveniently happened to be West Side Story (now you see the reason for the title). It was just the most charming night with the most wonderful people. It felt like home, and I'm obviously one to assume that the outfit had some bearing on that. After all, I'm a girl with an irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on a mediocre night, which I'm sure you will agree is completely reasonable.
All mushiness aside, I am rather in love with this outfit. I have a slight obsession with leather (or rather fake leather), which is certainly helped by what's available in stores right now. I do hope this pastel trend continues for some time past this summer. Not only for the sake of only recently having purchased this skirt, but because I think it's rather darling. I can barely get away with it myself due to being pale, but pastel blues and pinks are something I'm happy enough to see scattered across everyone else on the high street, because I like seeing 'edgy' pieces which seem to have a Disney undertone. Yes, I see the princess element in everything.
